Notice of upcoming conventions

The BRC has compiled a list of conventions that will impact hotel room availability throughout the Bay Area in 2020.

If you are planning an event that will require guests to book lodging in the Bay Area, you may want to avoid overlapping with these conventions, as room rates typically increase dramatically —up to 300% — during these high-demand periods.

Travelers needing lodging during any of the dates listed below should reserve it as soon as possible.
